No matter what your occupation is, be it self-employed or corporate climber, getting ahead and staying ahead has long been a major concern of all who are not content with merely earning a living. In our eager, sometimes feverish, pursuit of personal pot of gold (and the power and prestige that comes with it), ambitious men and women have sought the knowledge of those who have achieved success before them. 

The Mafia Manager provides for the first time in a book the knowledge and precepts of the ruthless bosses whose genius at organization and management contributed far more to profitability and growth than did the brute strength and recourse to violence of the common, unsophisticated gangster or the conventional wisdom of the legitimate CEO. 

If you are an entrepreneur or business owner and you have not read The Mafia Manager, then you are probably denying yourself knowledge of some no-nonsense leadership and business management techniques for accelerated business growth.

Today, I want to share with you 50 Notable  quotes about life and business from The Mafia Manager. These quotes about life and business are just a tip of the iceberg with respect to what is contained in The Mafia Manager.

 * Be wary of people who talk too much, this is frequently a symptom of the compulsive liar.

“If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude”. - Maya Angelou 

A young bride from the East during wartime followed her husband to a U.S Army camp on the edge of the desert in California. Living conditions were primitive at best, and her husband had advised against her move, but she wanted to be with her newly wedded husband. The only housing they could find was a run-down shack near an Indian village. 

The heat was unbearable in the daytime - 115˚ in the shade. The wind blew constantly, spreading dust and sand all over everything. The days were long and boring. Her only neighbours were Indians, none of whom spoke English. When her husband was ordered farther into the desert for two weeks of maneuvers, loneliness and the wretched living conditions got the best of her. She wrote to her mother that she was coming home. She couldn’t take it anymore. 

In a short time she received a reply which included these two lines, “Two men looked through prison bars; one saw mud, the other saw stars”. She read the lines over and over again and began to feel ashamed of herself. She didn’t really want to leave her new husband. All right, she thought, she is going to look for the stars. In the following days she set out to make friends with the Indians, asking them to teach her weaving and pottery. At first they were distant, but as soon as they sensed her genuine interest, they returned her friendship. She became friendly with their culture and history – in fact, everything about them. She began to study the desert, it too changed from a desolate, forbidding place to a marvelous thing if beauty. 

She had her mother send her books. She studied the forms of cacti, the yuccas and the Joshua trees. She collected sea shells that had been left there when the sands had been an ocean floor. Later, she became such an expert on the area that she wrote a book 
about it. 

Wayne Dyer said “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”. We are individually responsible for our view of life. Whenever you are in a difficult situation ask yourself this question “What is the positive side of this thing, what is the good in this situation or what is the possibility that this thing will work out?” Our minds is our garden, our thoughts are the seed, so we can choose to plant flowers or weeds but remember the Bible says “Whatever a man sows, this he will also reap” (Galatians 6:7).

What had changed? Not the desert; not the Indians. Simply by changing her mind-set she had transformed a miserable experience into a highly rewarding one. She had turned a dusty and hot desert into a precious one.

A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and 
following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, and a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty”. - John Grogan

 Have you ever stop to think that a dog is the only animal that does not have to work for a living? A hen has to lay eggs, a cow has to give milk, a canary has to sing, a bee has to give honey and an ant has to work its ass off all day not even sleeping at night. How then does the dog manage to do this must be the question in your mind right now. Well the dog does this my being genuinely interested in man and being the best friend of man. The dog is the greatest winner of friends the world has ever known. 

When you met him, while walking down the street even when you are ten feet from him, he will begin to wag his tail. If you stop and pat him he will almost jump out of his skin to show you how much he likes you. You see it in his eyes that he genuinely loves you. And you know that behind this show of affection on his part, there are no ulterior motives. He does not want to sell you any real estate; he does not want to marry you and he is not expecting a bribe from you. But all these he does because he loves and is genuinely interested in you. 

Yes, the dog stays awake to guard you in the night while you sleep, comfort you when the world has left you, go on errands for you, follow you everywhere you go even when you don’t it to come along and protects you not because you are going to pay it at the end of the month. A dog won’t forsake its master because of his poverty. But because he is your friend and is genuinely interested in you. 

Dale Carnegie wrote "You can make more friends in two months by becoming more interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you" Another way to establish a good relationship with people and win them over to your side is to truly interested in them, to listen with the intention of really learning about them. Smile at them. Learn their names and how to pronounce them. Get the spelling and the titles right. Be curious about other people, what they feel, how they 
think, how they see the world, what are their hopes, dreams and fears? What are their aspirations? Notice what makes them happy and unhappy. When people feel that you are really interested in getting to know them and their feeling, they will open up to you and share their true feelings with you much more quickly.

In the end, people will judge you anyway. Don’t live your life impressing others. Live your life impressing yourself” – Alexander BusyBrain 

From the beginning of the world, men have been jealous of one another, men have criticized one another; so it is not a new thing to hear criticisms from your friends, parents, teachers, lecturers etc. But it only gets bad when you let these negative words and acts get to you. 

In fact, it should make you happy to know that people are even saying things about you because it means you are doing something. 2face in his song with MI “Nobody” said “If nobody talks about you, then you are nobody”. So, people talking about you, whether positively or negatively is good news. It means you are somebody. Cynthia Occelli said “When people undermine your dreams, predict your doom or criticize you, remember they are telling you their story, not yours”. 

Even Jesus, perfect in love and motives, was criticized and misunderstood continually. People called Him a glutton (Matthew 11:19), people called Him a drunkard (Luke 7:34), people criticized Him for associating with sinners (Matthew 9:11) and accused Him of having a demon (John 8:48). But, in spite of experiencing misunderstanding, ingratitude and rejection, our Lord Jesus never became bitter or discouraged. He saw every obstacle as an opportunity; an opportunity to heal the sick; an opportunity to show love to sinners; an opportunity to forgive sinners; Jesus turned every trial into triumphs. You should do the same. Be yourself no matter what other people say. God made you the way you are for a reason. Besides, an original is always worth more than a copy. 

Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe in you. Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all of the facts. Walter Gagehot wrote “A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do”.

Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.” - Robert T. Kiyosaki

Born into poverty, Lincoln was faced with defeat throughout his life. He lost eight elections, twice failed in business and suffered a nervous breakdown. He could have quit many times – but he didn’t and because he didn’t quit, he became one of the greatest presidents in the United States history. 

Here is a sketch of Lincoln’s road to the White House: 
• 1816 His family was forced out of their home. He had to work to support them.
• 1818 His mother died. 
• 1831 Failed in business. 
• 1832 Ran for state legislature – lost. 
• 1832 Also lost his job – wanted to go to law school but couldn’t get in. 
• 1833 Borrowed some money from a friend to begin a business and by the end of the year he was bankrupt. He spent the next 17 years of his life paying off this 
• 1834 Ran for state legislature again – won. 
• 1835 Was engaged to be married, sweetheart died and his heart was broken. 
• 1836 Had a total nervous breakdown and was in bed for six months. 
• 1838 Sought to become speaker of the state legislature – defeated. 
• 1840 Sought to become elector – defeated. 
• 1843 Ran for Congress – lost. 
• 1846 Ran for Congress again – this time he won – went to Washington and did a good job. 
• 1848 Ran for re-election to Congress – lost. 
• 1849 Sought the job of land officer in his home state – rejected. 
• 1854 Ran for Senate of the United States – lost. 
• 1856 Sought the Vice-Presidential nomination at his party’s national convention – get less than 100 votes. 
• 1858 Ran for U.S. Senate again – again he lost. 
• 1860 Elected president of the United States

Lincoln’s life could demonstrate that the only time you don’t fail is the last time you try something and it works. He proves to us with his life that failure is simply an opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. We can fail forward toward success. History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heart-breaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeat. Elmer Clark wrote “Great people are created by great mistakes that are learned from, not from great successes that are gloated upon”. 
Most of us will stumble and fall in life. Doors will get slammed in our faces, and we 
might make some bad decisions. But imagine if Lincoln had given up the first time he failed or the third time, am sure he would never had become one of the greatest presidents in the United States history. 

Thomas Edison said Failure doesn't mean that we are off the track to success. It merely forces us to take a detour to success”. The moment you're ready to quit is usually the moment right before the miracle happens. So never give up on those beautiful dreams of yours, you are closer to your miracle, your breakthrough and achieving your goals more than you know.

“You only live once and after that come death”. - Rick Ross 

Rick Ross once said, “You only live once and after that come death” which is the truth. You only live once and after that, there is no more. There is no second chance. There is nothing like reincarnation. The Bible is the standard for all Christians. From Genesis to Revelation it never made mention of reincarnation or anything even close to it. So I don’t see any reason why I or any other should believe in it for any reason. 

In fact, I personally think reincarnation is the idea of some men who did not complete their mission and assignment here on earth. Those people who wasted their lives when they were young. And are looking for a second chance to make things right. Telling themselves that they are going to come back to finish what they were suppose to complete before dying. 

Our forefathers mistake the power of human genetic and heredity by saying that a child who looked and have similar features with his forefathers is a come back of that their forefathers. I have been told that I am a comeback of my grandfather because we look alike and I have similar characteristics. 

This is the life God has given me, and I am going to make the very most of it. I am not here to relive the life of anyone not even that of my grandfather. I am here to fulfill my own purpose and destiny. You are here to also fulfill your own God-given purpose and destiny. If you don’t fulfill it, no one will. There is no second chance for you. Anything you leave here undone remains that way. If you do not fulfill your destiny before leaving here, no one is going to fulfill it for you. You will not reincarnate to fulfill it. 

I can’t think of anything more tragic than to come to the end of one's life on earth and realize that you have not really “lived”, that you never became what God created you to be. You simply endured an average, mediocre life. You got by, but you lived without passion or enthusiasm, allowing your inner potential to lie dormant and untapped just because of fear of failure, because of other people's option about you. 

Live everyday of your precious life with this at the back of your mind,  that after this life here there is no coming back. Don’t let fear of failure prevent you from living the great life that God has destined you to live. If you allow fear of failure to stop and prevent you from accomplishing your purpose, what are you going to tell your creator when you get to the other side?

Do not get obsolete like an old technology, keep innovating yourself. - Sukant Ratnakar

Make friends with successful people and occasionally buy them gift and surprise them with lunch because successful people always give and hardly get, so when you give them, they value the gift a lot. 
Also make new positive friends as often as possible and ensure you keep the communication line open. Create a network of friends and not just connections.

Show love and kindness to everyone. Respect those above you and also those below you. Some small boys today will be big boys tomorrow. The biggest dog in the neighborhood was once a puppy. And keep the information/secret to yourself.
Also put control over your mouth, never say evil of any man, what you are not certain of should not be said. Say good of all men.

Make sure at every point in time you are reading a book. Any book, but mostly books about your field of study or work and inspirational books. If you spend 20 minutes reading daily, for 52 weeks you would have consumed 1,000,000 words.
Also make it a habit of keeping a pen and a writing pad handy because ideas come in the form of flashes. The smallest pen is bigger and better than the biggest brain.

Stay away from television as much as possible. You can watch educational channels. Men with big TV sits in front of them to watch men with big library. Remember anytime you are watching the television, the person on the TV screen is doing something better than you. 

Listen to speeches and messages from great teachers. Both religious and educational. Also attend seminars and training on any area you need to improve yourself. Train the trainer, personal development, public speaking, sales etc.

Live a debt free life. What you can’t pay cash for is not your size. Give out loans that you can part with as gift, so that you don’t destroy your business and relationships over it. 

Create legitimate multiple source of income. Save at least 10 percent of your income. Invest a portion of your income. And be patient to see it grow. If what you have in your hands is not good to be called a harvest then it’s a seed, sow it. Keep a good financial record of all income and expenses, so you won’t ask later “where did my money go”. 

For everything you are about to do or achieve, there is someone who has already done it or achieved it. Great men in history all had mentors that made them what they are. 
So get a mentor and follow his instructions and respect the relationship. Never beg your mentor for money or disrespect his or her privacy.

Make sure you engage in exercise. Go for a walk or jog, engage in any sport activity, visit the gym. It keeps your brain alert and your body fit to enjoy your success. Also keep a good personal hygiene. For cleanliness is next to Godliness. 

The most important of them all - Prayer. Pray often, and know that for every success, there is a stronger being (God) that made it possible.

Am not all-knowing, I just laid out all I know and what is working for me. Please feel free to comment and add up any step you think i left out or even your own steps (what's working for you).

What is success? To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; That is to have succeeded”. - Ralph Waldo Emerson 

One way to know the dream of someone is to ask him “What is success to you?” This question helps you outline your dreams and if answered correctly,  would certainly give your life a meaning, help you focus on your core-genius and become better at what you are born to do. 

Gone are those days, when I am asked “What is success to you?” And I will reply saying “Success is making so much money that my wife will not be able to spend it all in one day”. But true success in life is not measured by how much you make, but by how much of a difference you make. The rap artist Rick Ross once said “By how many people you bless, that’s how you measure success”

I quite agree with him. Right now, if I am asked “What is success to you?” I will reply the person saying “Success is helping that young man and woman discover and develop his or her talent; success is telling that man or woman in the street that Jesus so love him or her that He came to die for him or her; success is motivating and inspiring the young generation to be better people; success is feeding the hungry, praying for the sick and providing home for the homeless.  

Success is becoming the best husband and father in the world; success is making the world a better place in anyway that I can; success is making my neighbor feel blessed for having me as a neighbor; success is blessing the lives of my people and not just the lives of my parents and family members; success is sending a whole community of children to school. 

Success is when that young man or woman can say “Thank God, a certain Alexander BusyBrain walked this earth, for he has blessed my Life. Remember, this is what success means to me and it does not have to be yours. 

Herschel Walker said “I still say that I am a little different because success to me is not having the most money, or having the biggest car or the biggest house. Success is just being happy.” 

My question to you reading this right now is “What is success to you?” 

I want you to sit back and really think of what success means to you and share it with me on the comments below.

Who said YOU CANT?

To be a champion, you have to believe in yourself when nobody else will. - Sugar Ray Robinson

Back in the Garden of Eden, when the world was still very young, just after our father Adam and our mother Eve ate the forbidden fruit, they hid themselves from God. In the cool of the day, God came to them and said, Adam, Eve, where are you? They said, God, we are hiding because we are naked. God immediately knew that the enemy the devil has been talking to them. So He said, Adam, who told you that you are naked?

God is asking the same to you right now, who said you cant be great, who said you cant be successful, who said you cant be rich, who said you cant be a blessing to this generation, who said you cant achieve that goal, who said you cant find true love, who said you cant be the best father or mother and husband or wife in the world?

Who said you cant discover and develop your talent, who said you cant preach the gospel, who said you cant heal the sick, who said you cant help the poor, who said you cant give scholarship to a community of children, who said you cant love your neighbor as yourself, who said you cant impact lives in a positive way, who said you cant drop those bad habits of yours?

Who said you cant write your name in the sand of time, who said you cant live a righteous life, who said you are not beautiful or handsome; who said you cant graduate with first class, who said you cant overcome that challenge, who said you were born a mistake or an error?

who said you wont travel to places or tour the world, who said you are lonely, who said you are suffering, who said you are sick, who said you are going to die, who said you cant be a hero, who said you cant be the best child or parent in the world and who said you are a failure? Who! Who! Who said it? If it is anyone, be it your father, teacher, pastor, doctor, friend, sibling, boss etc then it is a big lie from the pit of hell.

If it is you that said it then, am sorry my friend because it might just be true. We are the only ones that can define our lives, not any other person. Brian Tracy wrote You are the architect of your own destiny; you are the master of your own fate; you are behind the steering wheel of your life. There are no limitations to what you can do, have, or be. Except the limitations you place on yourself by your own thinking. You are confined only by the walls you build yourself. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

If you are going to be successful, you need to give up the phrase I cant and its family members like I wish I were able to, People like me dont do it, Can I really do this? etc. The words I cant actually disempower you. They make you weaker than you were when you said it. Remember Success comes in cans'. Failures come in cants'.

"Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one." - Malcolm Forbes

Now get this right, am not in anyway saying that education is not important or compulsory. It is very important and I can’t start stating the important of education here because it will take more than half the space provided in this book for other things. But am going to share with you what Brian Tracy said in his book “Create your own future”. 

He said researchers in the Department of Labour in USA found that a person who completes high school would earn about $600,000 over the course of his or her working lifetime. But a person with two-year community college degree will earn about $1,000,000 in his or her lifetime. This work out to an additional $400,000 more than a high school certificate, or about $200,000 more of lifetime income for each additional year of study. 

A university graduate with a four-year diploma will earn about $1,400,00 on average, over the course of his or her lifetime. A person with a master’s degree, equal to approximately five or six years of college education, will learn about $2,000,000 in his or her lifetime. A person with a Ph.D., which requires two to four additional years, will earn an average of $3,000,000. 

Every additional year of schooling after high school will increase your annual income from 8 percent to 25 percent per year, depending upon the relevance of the courses that you take. Brian Tracy wrote “Commit yourself to life long learning. The most valuable asset you will ever have is your mind and what you put into it.” 
Education has also made many men and women great and successful. But think about using both education and your God given talent. Think about discovering your talent now and going into the university to read a course that is related to your talent. 

Even if you are in the university now, think about developing your talent now and later using it to work and impact lives, then the sky will be your stepping stone. If you are out of the university, think about finding where your talent is needed and work there, I assure you getting to the top will be easy and smooth. 

Your talent gives you an edge in life. A career is where most people will end up using their developed talent. Can you imagine graduating with a degree in a course that engages your talent? You would be passionate and fully engaged at work because you’d love what you do. Why get a job just to earn a paycheck when you go to work to make a difference? When you are not in your talent zone, you are most likely not passionate about your job. 

The people who grow fastest and get the most done at work are those who love what they do and are good at what they do. This is their talent zone. 

If you know what your natural talents are, you can focus on developing them into strength. Any of you can devote your life to work that is congruent or in harmony with your natural talents and strengths. Most likely, this will be a much better use of your time and generally will make you happier, more effective and more successful. 

Incase you don’t know what your God’s given talent is, don’t worry that is what my book TALENT - THE BOMB is all about. Helping you discover and develop those talents of yours.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” - Martin Luther King Jr

1. IT'S FAMILIAR: A calling comes not just by looking forward to what you will do but by also looking back at what you have done. 

2. IT'S SOMETHING OTHER PEOPLE SEE IN YOU: Sometimes, our vocations are more obvious to people who know us best. It is something you must have received few compliments from people for. 

3. IT'S CHALLENGING: It must be difficult enough that not everyone can do it. It is said that what you can do better than 10000 people is your gift or Talent. 

4. IT REQUIRES FAITH: It cannot be something so obvious that you can easily explain it. It must be mysterious but at the same time, you are sure deep down even if you can't explain it. 

5. IT TAKES TIME: You have to fail your way in the right direction before you find it and this requires a lot of time and patience. 

6. IT'S MORE THAN JUST ONE THING: It integrates well with the rest of your life, not competing with but complementing your top priorities. 

7. IT IS BIGGER THAN YOU: The task must be so large that without a team of people,  you cannot complete it on your own. And it must be about helping a vast majority of people. 

8. IT MAKES YOU HAPPY: Finally, it must make you really happy, gives you a sense of belonging and fulfillment whenever you are carrying it out.

If you have found your calling, Please feel free to add how you came to be sure it was your calling.

Do YOU have a FRIEND like BILL?

“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Horror gripped the heart of the World War I soldier as he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle. Caught in a trench with continuous gunfire whizzing over his head, the soldier asked his lieutenant if he might go out into the no mans land between the trenches to bring his fallen comrade back. You can go, said the lieutenant, but I dont think it will be worth it. Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your life away.
The lieutenants advice didnt matter, and the soldier went anyway. Miraculously he managed to reach his friend, hoist him onto his shoulder and brought him back to their companys trench. As the two of them tumbled together to the bottom of the trench, the officer checked the wounded soldier, and then looked kindly at his friend. 
I told you it wouldnt be worth it, he said.
Your friend is dead and you are mortally wounded.
It was worth it, though, sir, said the soldier.
What do you mean; worth it? responded the Lieutenant. Your friend is dead.
Yes, Sir the private answered. But it was worth it because when I got to him, he was still alive and I had the satisfaction of hearing him saying, Bill, I knew youd come. And thats true friendship. 

Friendship is a deep relation tied with a particular closeness based on love and sharing of common interest. An African proverb says A friend is a brother that one chose. A friend is a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations.

Do you have friends like Bill? Or can you be like Bill to your friends? If you dont have friends like that, drop the old ones and go get yourself new ones. If you are not like Bill to your friends, you better change before they drop you and find themselves new friends.

What FEARS YOU need to FACE?

The first duty of man is to conquer fear; he must get rid of it, he cannot act till then. -Thomas Carlyle

One day, on the plains of Africa, a young buffalo named Walter approached his dad and asked him if there was anything that he should be afraid of.
Only lions my son, his dad responded.
Oh yes, Ive heard about lions. If I ever see one, Ill turn and run as fast as I can, said Walter.
No, thats the worst thing you can do, said the large male.
Why? They are scary and will try to kill me.
The dad smiled and explained, Walter, if you run away, the lions will chase you and catch you. And when they do, they will jump on your unprotected back and bring you down.
So what should I do? asked Walter.
If you ever see a lion, stand your ground to show him that youre not afraid. If he doesnt move away, show him your sharp horns and stomp the ground with your hooves. If that doesnt work, move slowly towards him. If that doesnt work, charge him and hit him with everything youve got!
Thats crazy; I will be too scared to do that.
What if he attacks me back? said the startled young buffalo.
Look around, Walter. What do you see?
Walter looked around at the rest of his herd. There were about 200 massive beasts all armed with sharp horns and huge shoulders. If ever youre afraid, know that we are here. If you panic and run from your fears, we cant save you, but if you charge towards them, well be right behind you.
The young buffalo breathed deeply and nodded. Thanks dad, I think I understand.

We all have lions in our worlds. There are aspects of life that scare us and make us want to run, but if we do, they will chase us down and take over our lives. Our thoughts will become dominated by the things that we are afraid of and our actions will become timid and cautious, not allowing us to reach our full potential.

So face your fears. Show them that youre not afraid. Show them how powerful you really are. And run towards them with courage and boldness, knowing that we are supporting you and cheering you on. May you always do what you are afraid to do.

What fears do you need to face at the moment?

The eagle has no fear of adversity. We need to be like the eagle and have a fearless spirit of a conqueror! - Joyce Meyer

1. Eagles fly Alone and at High Altitudes.
They don't fly with sparrows, ravens, and other small birds.

MEANING Stay away from narrow-minded people, those that bring you down. Eagle flies with Eagles. Keep good company.

2. Eagles have an Accurate Vision. They have the ability to focus on something as far as 5km away. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.

MEANING Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacles and you will succeed.

3. Eagles do not Eat Dead things. They Feed only on Fresh Prey.

MEANING  Do not rely on your past success, keep looking for new frontiers to conquer. Leave your past where it belongs, in the past.

4. Eagles Love the Storm.
When clouds gather, the eagle gets excited, the eagle uses the storms wind to lift itself higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagle uses the raging storm to lift itself above the clouds. This gives the eagle an opportunity to glide and rest its wings. In the meantime, all the other birds hide in the branches and leaves of the tree.

MEANING Face your challenges head on knowing that these will make you emerge stronger and better than you were. We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid of challenges, rather they relish them and use them profitably.

5. When a Female Eagle Meets a Male Eagle and they want to mate, she flies down to earth, picks a twig and flies back into the air with the male eagle in hot pursuit. Once she has reached a height high enough for her, she drops the twig and let it fall to the ground while she watches. The male eagle chases after the twig and catches it before it reached the ground, then bring it back to the female eagle. The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a much higher altitude and drop the twig again for the male eagle to chase. This goes on for hours with the height increasing each time until the female eagle is assured that the male eagle has mastered the art of picking the twig which shows commitment. Then and only then will she allow him to mate with her.

MEANING Whether in private life or business, one should test the commitment of the people intended for partnership.

6. Eagles Prepare for Training
They remove the feathers and soft grass in the nest so that the young ones get uncomfortable in preparation for flying and eventually flies when it becomes unbearable to stay in the nest.

MEANING Leave your Comfort Zone, there is No Growth there.

7. When the Eagle Grows Old,
His feathers becomes weak and cannot take him as fast and as high as it should. This makes him weak and could make him die. So he retires to a place far away in the mountains. While there, he plucks out the weak feathers on his body and breaks its beaks and claws against the rocks until he is completely bare; a very bloody and painful process. Then he stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers, new beaks and claws and then he comes out flying higher than before.

MEANING We deliberately need to shed off old habit no matter how difficult, things that burden us and add no value to our lives should be let go of.

Wikipedia defines author's block as a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work or experiences a creative slowdown. The condition ranges in difficulty from coming up with original ideas to being unable to produce a work for years.

Here are few ideas to help you work through your creative constipation:

1. Go for a walk.

2. Eliminate distractions of all kinds. 

3. Rest and get away from your work a little ( I really a little here) as this will allow a flow of fresh ideas. 

4. Play. (My personal preference is Chess.)

5. Change your environment, travel to a new place and meet new people.

6. Read a book that relates to what you are about to work on.

7. Listen to music (try classical or jazz to mix it up).

8. Cup down some liquid (cold glass of water my personal favorite).

9. Create a routine. Many famous writers havedaily routines to summon the Muse.

10. Spend time with someone who makes you feel good.

11. Call an old friend (This really worked for me recently). 

12. Brainstorm ideas in bullet points.

13. Read some inspiring quotes to get you started.

The possibilities are endless, but movement is critical. You need to generate momentum to get out of your funk.

Once you start heading in a direction, it’s easier to pick up speed. And before you know it, your block will be a distant memory and you’ll be doing what you once thought impossible. You’ll be writing.

How to not overcome writer’s block

And just for fun, here are some anti-solutions to this problem:

1. You do not overcome writer’s block by refusing to write until you feel “ inspired.”There by wasting so much time. 

2. You do not overcome writer’s block by wallowing in self-pity.

3. You do not overcome writer’s block by procrastinating or making excuses like great stories and books takes time to put together like I previously thought. 

4. You do not overcome writer’s block by watching TV or movies. I did this for long until I discovered it does not work. 

5. You do not overcome writer’s block by reading articles on how to overcome writer’s block.

If I am given ten hours to cut down a tree, I will spend the eight hours sharpening my cutlass.  Abraham Lincoln

Once upon a time, a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant and he got it. The pay was really good and so was the work condition. For those reasons, the woodcutter was determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he supposed to work. The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees. Congratulations, the boss said. Go on that way! Very motivated by the boss words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he could only bring 15 trees. 

The third day he tried even harder, but he could only bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees. I must be losing my strength, the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on. 
When was the last time you sharpened your axe? the boss asked. 
Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees... 

Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we dont take time to sharpen the axe. In todays world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever, but less happy that ever. Why is that? Could it be that we have forgotten how to stay sharp? Theres nothing wrong with activity and hard work. But we should not get so busy that we neglect the truly important things in life, like our personal life, taking time to get close to our Creator, giving more time for our family, taking time to read etc. We all need time to relax, to think and meditate, to learn and grow. 
If we dont take the time to sharpen the axe, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness.

"I believe that every person is born with talent." - Maya Angelou

Talents are natural abilities, special endowments and God's gifts to us. Talent is God-given skills a person easily performs without formal training. A person regardless of his belief in God is given a natural talent as a result of a combination of genetics (some have ability in music, art or mathematics) and surroundings (growing up in a musical family will aid one in developing a talent for music), or because God desired to endow all of us with certain talents. 

When God created man and woman, He designed them to fulfill a certain function and gave them certain qualities and characteristics that enabled them to perform His intended purpose. These abilities (talents) are yours before birth. They do not come to you when you receive Jesus as your Lord and personal savior. These abilities are your natural talent. They dominate about 70% of you. When you ignore it, here is what it says Cant breathe! You are choking me. 

When talent is discussed, most people think about music, sports or movie stars. Why? Because this is what society celebrates? People find it hard to label certain things as a talent. Anything in which you are naturally above average is a talent. Thus, your natural abilities to socialize with people or to seek solitude, to think with your mind or to do things with your hands, to communicate with words or to express yourself through the various art forms, to come up with the ideas or to put them into action, to lead or to follow, to inspire or to manage, to calculate or to demonstrate, to be good at counseling people, helping people, making others laugh and happy. 

Do you find it convenient bearing the burden of others; do you have the patience to listen to others while they unbar their heart and burden? Do you find it easy to pray for others and they are healed? Do you work with tools and you find it adventurous and pleasurable? Do you find it easy to organized people, events? 

The list is endless. These are all talents given freely to us by God. They are all part of your makeup and your personality from the time God chose to make you and designed you in a particular way. They relate to your purpose, which is a natural, innate, intimate part of who you are. You are designed for your purpose, without accomplishing that purpose you will not be happy and you need to discover your talents to be able to accomplish that purpose.

If your answer to the question above is no or I dont know. Am not really surprise, but then again, that is why you should download and read this free ebook TALENT - THE BOMB by Alexander BusyBrain and am sure your answer will be different at the end of the book. Just make sure you get to the end and apply the principles.


I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. - Psalm 139:14

The account of creation in genesis tells us that the whole world was created by God. Everything in it was spoken into creation by Him in just five days. But, when it was time for God to make you, He took His time. God almighty created you in nine months. From the first day of your life He began his creative work in you.

For the next nine months He worked daily right inside your mothers womb. He was working just to make you perfect and unique. David understood this thats why he said in Psalm 139:13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mothers womb. Which also means God was thinking about you before you were even born. When God was through with His work on making you perfect and unique; just before your beautiful mother gave birth to you, God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good Gen 1:31 (KJV).

So think what a remarkable and miraculous thing it is to be you, God made you Himself. You are a product of Gods consistent, conscious and careful handiwork of nine months nonstop. Of all the people who have come and gone on the earth, since the beginning of time, not one of them is like you! No one who has ever lived or is to come has had your combination of abilities, talents, appearance, friends, acquaintances, burdens, sorrows and opportunities.

No ones hair grows exactly the way yours does. No ones finger prints are like yours. No one has the same combination of secrets, jokes and family expressions that you know. The few people who laugh at all the same things you do dont sneeze the way you do. No one prays about exactly the same concerns as you do. No one is loved by the same combination of people that love you. No one can reach out to others in the same way that you can. No one can speak your words. No one can convey your meanings. No one can comfort with your kind of comfort. No one can bring your kind of understanding to another person. No one can be cheerful and lighthearted and joyous in your way. No one can smile your smile. No one else can bring the whole unique impact of you to another human being.

God needs you because your purpose is unique. He has designed you specifically to meet his requirements. Enjoy that uniqueness. You do not have to pretend in order to seem more like someone else. You werent meant to be like someone else. You do not have to lie to conceal the parts of you that are not like what you see in anyone else. You were meant to be different. Nowhere ever in all of history will the same things be going on in anyones mind, soul and spirit as are going on in yours right now.

Treasure your uniqueness. Let it inform, nudge and inspire you. It is one reason why you should feel a sense of destiny and value. God designed you as you are for a purpose. You are not ordinary. Quit being negative and critical towards yourself and begin to enjoy the unique creation of God. YOU ARE UNIQUE!

Your God given talents will get you further than any gift man can give you. Use your talent. Believe in yourself. Be unstoppable. - Alexander BusyBrain

Education is a life process of learning. It is quite different from schooling. The creators manual says in Proverbs 18:16 that “A mans gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men. This scripture is so significant. It never said that your education will give you a place (room) in this earth. It boldly said your gifts and talents will.

Wonder why some people joke with what is going to enlist them for greatness and give them a place of influence on earth. A place where you can exercise your God-given talent and provide leadership for others. An area where you are gifted and talented and you are greatly needed. Now, this is it. Education was meant to beautify the room that your talent will make for you. It is important to note that education is what fine tunes and refines you in tune with your talents.

It is a tragedy when someone acquires education outside his/her area of gifting. Hope comes when such person re-traces his or her bearing to discover and develop his talent. Acquiring Education outside your talent only translates to a waste of time. Believe me; you will never get fulfilled because you are not in the right environment.

Everyone was gifted in an area. We are expected to function in that area/environment of our talent. There will our fulfillment be made manifest and off course, you will be providing leadership to others. Life becomes sweet when you discover your talents so early and acquire education in that area.

And to discover those seed of greatness (Talents) you will need to read TALENT - THE BOMB by Alexander BusyBrain

I believe that God has put gifts and talents and ability on the inside of every one of us. When you develop that and you believe that you are a person of influence and a person of purpose, I believe you can rise up out of any situation. - Joel Osteen

A man died and found himself in Heaven where he met an angel. He asked the angel saying I have been interested in military history for many years. Tell me, who was the greatest general of all time? Oh thats a simple question. It is that man right over there The angel replied pointing his finger to a man dressed in a shining white dress, standing next to other people dressed in the same apparel. They all seem to be very happy. 

The man then said in surprise You must be mistaken, I knew that man on earth and he was just a common labourer. The angel replied him with a broad smile saying He would have been the greatest general of all time, if he had been a general. He was given the necessary tools but he never became a general. 

What a tragedy! I dont want you to end up like this man that was given everything he needed to become the greatest general in history but ended up a common labourer. You have been given everything you need both physically and spiritually. God has programmed you with everything you need for a great and victorious life (Ephesians 1:3). 

Such great amount of talent has been deposited in you to make you the greatest teacher, singer, dancer, leader, footballer, mathematician, etc. in history. The scripture teaches that we have a valuable treasure on the inside. You have a great gift. You are a child of the Most High God. God has breathed His life into you. He planted seeds of greatness in you. You have everything you need to fulfill your God-given destiny. 

God has already put in you the talents, the creativity, the ability, the discipline, the wisdom and the determination. It is all in you. You have something to offer that nobody else has. You didnt just show up on planet earth by accident. You were handpicked by Almighty God. He saw you before you were formed in your mothers womb and placed you here for a reason. You have an assignment. There is something that God wants you to accomplish. Someone somewhere needs your talent. Somebody needs your touch. Somebody needs what you have on the inside.

All you have to do is to discover and develop those great talents of yours; impact the world with it, fulfill your purpose for being in this world. That is the whole essence of this book. Read on and am sure you will discover those unique talents of yours.

Who is the greatest general? You! Yes. You! You can be greatest general in your sphere of influence and in any field that has to do with your talents because working with your talents is what you are here to do. It is what God has programmed you for and He has given you all you will ever need to do this.
